Whiston Forge CC was established in 2015 as result of a merger between Whiston CC and
Forgemasters CC, and competes in the
South Yorkshire Senior Cricket League.
Both clubs have a strong cricketing heritage within South Yorkshire competing in the Doncaster & District Cricket League and Sheffield Cricket League respectively and later both competing against each other in the South Yorkshire Cricket Alliance.
Founded in 1926, 'Whiston Methodists Cricket
Club' based in the picturesque Rotherham village, and renamed in 2013 as 'Whiston Cricket Club', competed in the Doncaster & District Cricket League (est. 1912).
Forgemasters Cricket Club originally was set up as a works team playing under Firth Brown Sports Club and competed in the Sheffield Cricket League (est. 1937) and later in 2014 were renamed Denaby Old Forge CC following a change of home.
Following a merger in 2010 of the Doncaster and Sheffield cricket leagues, both teams then came together in the newly formed South Yorkshire Cricket Alliance (SYCA). Then in 2015, Whiston Forge CC became part of the South Yorkshire Senior Cricket League (SYSCL).
Whiston Forge CC is a proud and
developing cricket club located in the heart of the community.
Our aim is to
provide a positive and enjoyable experience for all players and everyone
